About half way through this so far, some notes:
interestingly he refers to the southern manifesto as being passed by southern congressman not democrats
I am not particularly interested in the brown v. board era stuff as that has already been acknowledged and people in my opinion are in agreement that this stuff was wrong and have tried to change that
Not sure I agree with his stance about the drug wars, don't want to be busted for drugs which causes all communities harm, don't buy or sell them. Were the harsher penalites for drugs associated with blacks unfair, I agree, but cant get busted for drugs if you abstain
Further along notes:
he acknowledges no explicit racism in justice system anymore (progress, also means system is adapting)
militarizing the police, but he doesn't offer reasons as to why really, I would imagine this has to deal with the way the drug cartels were adapting to more pressure
Would also like some sourcing of his statistics, could be cherry picking as well, picks specific cities and areas
I am in agreement that we do need police reform and prison reform, across the board
2 minutes left roughly finally gets back to his housing income point
and ends it with a minute left looking sad (I LOL'd sorry)
I feel like he left some things out that also contribute, like fatherless homes etc.
Also didn't like that he proposed no solutions.
Household values are tied to property value, crime certainly reduces those numbers which would have an impact, are we over targeting these areas? is there any community responsibility/accountability in there?
I didn't really see him bring up any data from since after I was born (1985) about keeping blacks from moving to white neighborhoods.
Another question, living in urban areas is less likely to have home ownership no?
